streaming on xfinity on a macbook pro

Does anyone have as much trouble as me streaming live shows on their computer?  I have called hundreds of times, they have sent techs out to review my cable and modems to NO avail.  I can stream from Netflix or Amazon but Xfinity is HORRIBLE.  It never ever works.  I will be looking for another company.

By horrible i mean, the streaming stops or freezes or error messages come up. Usually says something is wrong w the tvapp. If i am using my smart phone at the same time, its fine.
Tonite i tried using tv to go, seems to work better. My wifi is connected, ive cleaned up my computer...called comcast a zillion times and they never have a solution.

since other devices work fine the stream itself is fine. did you try closing all open apps/browser windows etc and rebooting and then running just one browser window to run the xfinity stream site? also, did you check to see if the macbook is fully updated so it is not trying to update in the background?
